A new Oklahoma law limits how many medical marijuana patients a caregiver can grow for, and how much the caregiver can charge for growing, said Tulsa medical marijuana attorney Stephen Cale.
The following is a general overview for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. Laws and regulations change often.
Gov. Kevin Stitt signed SB1033 on May 28. That bill has a laundry list of changes to Oklahoma’s medical marijuana program. One change deals with caregivers.
SB1033 does the following regarding caregivers:
- A caregiver can’t have more than five patients that the caregiver is growing for.
- A caregiver who grows for a patient can’t charge the patient more than the “actual costs incurred in cultivating the medical marijuana.”
The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) already had regulations limiting caregivers to five patients that they could grow for, Oklahoma medical marijuana attorney Stephen Cale said. OAC 310:681-2-3(e)(2). SB1033 puts that limit into statutory law, he said.
